The Scent of Nature - The Forest Sojourn

The Scent of Nature - The Forest Sojourn

The Scent of Nature - The Forest Sojourn

"The forest whispers through its scents, each breath is a reminder that we are part of something greater, something timeless."
— Unknown

 What sight is to stories, the smell is to experience. We see a lot and listen and our memory is full of them. We are never taught to have smell memory. The forest is a cauldron of memories cooked with fragrances. A walk in the forest is like liberating yourself. Scent of Nature are the purest things that man can ever find or make. Our living experiences and memories have smell in the center.

In the forest scents are the most important memories created. The scent forms the GPS for many animals and other insects both for survival and food. In the forest, deer actively use their keen sense of smell to navigate and communicate. They follow plant scents to find food and avoid predator odors. The musk of a male deer combines with floral and leafy aromas, conveying important information to other deer and aiding in their survival.

The forest's scent ignites your imagination, inspiring you to create, dream, and explore new possibilities. It sparks curiosity, urging you to uncover the mysteries of nature. The forest's aroma becomes a muse, whispering secrets and stories to those who truly listen.

Just like the sound of flowing water, the smell of the forest can heal. The Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, or “Forest Bathing” involves spending time in forests to improve health. Studies show it lowers stress hormones, reduces blood pressure, and enhances mood. Forest scents have a calming effect, clearing the mind and promoting well-being. The molecule released in the forest by trees, leaf litter, soil, pollens, etc has great healing properties.  In fact, the great Indian tradition of Ayurveda has a deep indebtedness in the forest - The hidden elixir of life.

The scent of nature changes throughout the season all year long. The smell of the first rain falling on the parched earth gave us lots of poetry. You can pick a leaf from any part of the forest and just crush it, they smell so different and unique. As they dry in the hot sun, they keep emitting different fragrances and the whole summer experience. In summer most leaves fall along with the half-eaten fruits. They form a combination of sweets and musky concoctions that are a special signature of the scents of nature. In the Museum of Egypt, you have small bottles of stored fragrances from the city. Each is so unique that scientists are still trying to emulate them.

The link between Nature and human well-being is well established. It is now established that the scent of nature has a great hand in the well-being across all seasons. Nonetheless, the use of smells to promote health and well-being has occurred throughout history and is central to traditional and contemporary aromatherapy, as well as contributing to the therapeutic benefit of forest bathing. The smell of nature has been employed for the treatment of a series of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s. The lack of the natural environment denied COVID-19 due to the lockdown has impaired people's quality of life and emotional well-being.

In evolutionary terms, the olfactory system plays a critical role in identifying food, insects, and predators as well as detecting warning signs for danger like spoiled food or chemical hazards. Smell is unique amongst the senses in terms of its biological mechanism. Generally, the senses of light and sound first travel to the brain to the region called the thalamus and that relays it to the other parts of the body to act. However, smell travels directly to the limbic system that houses the amygdala, where it processes emotion, and the hippocampus where our learning and memory formation occurs. Therefore olfactory memories can induce powerful emotional responses when triggered.
